Why Are You an Atheist?

Wednesday, Sep 25, 2013 - 6pm ET

I see nothing that would cause me to think that there is a creator that cares about us.

I want to believe and I go to Church. But I struggle with the outlandish stories in the Bible like Jonah and Noah.

I think Richard Dawkins’ “The God Delusion” has a lot of good info on why religion is made up.

Answering Atheism
Today’s popular champions of atheism are often called New Atheists, because they don’t just deny God’s existence (as the old atheists did)—they consider it their duty to scorn and ridicule religious belief. But there’s nothing really “new” about their arguments. They’re the same basic objections to theism that mankind has wrestled with for centuries. We don’t need new answers for this aggressive modern strain of unbelief: We need a new approach. In Answering Atheism, Trent Horn responds to that need with a fresh and useful resource for the God debate, combining a thorough refutation of atheist claims with a skillfully constructed case for theism based on reason and common sense. Just as important, he advocates a charitable approach that respects atheists’ sincerity and good will—making this book suitable not just for believers but for skeptics and seekers too.
